Daybook Entry 2-20-15
The Daybook is a blogging exercise I used to indulge in during my early blogging years. I came across it again today and was inspired to use the template pounce again to get my blogging re-kickstarted.
FOR TODAY, Friday February 20, 2015
Outside my window...The wind is blowing snow flurries around and many little birds are enjoying the birdfeeder on my back deck. Warmer than yesterday, the temps will get up into the 20s today. Yesterday it stayed below zero all day.
I am thinking... I really enjoyed the new Bible/book study that I took part in with some of women from my church, from another local church, and the staff here at Menno Haven. I was hoping to find a reason to fellowship with the women from the other local church, and this will be perfect!
I am thankful... For a warm house and that I did the shopping yesterday so my cupboards are full today!
In the kitchen... Lately we've been going to a major transition in the way that we eat. We have almost completely eliminated dairy from our diets. We are eliminating all grains, sweeteners, processed foods, etc for the next 30 days. It is called the Whole 30 program.
I am wearing... Long underwear, black cords, red turtleneck, grey, red, black and white striped sweater
I am creating... A healthy family, a clean house, and a blog entry!
I am going... To take Jaedyn to school in a few minutes.
I am wondering... If we will ever find a good school solution for Jaedyn.
I am reading... It Starts with Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, and finishing book 5 of The Viking Quest series by Lois Walfred Johnson. Both excellent reading.
I am hoping... To get to the point that all my kids will be in school and thriving.
I am looking forward to... Seeing what good changes the Whole 30 will bring to my family.
I am learning... About nutrition and healthy diets - quite contrary to common medical advice.
Around the house... The rats are happy in their clean cage. Joe is in the clean living room on the couch watching The Hobbit DVD because he has a stomach bug.
I am pondering... what to do today. I don't have much motivation.
A favorite quote for today... "The only ill will you will see here is that which you bring among yourselves." Gandalf to Thorin Oakenshield upon entering Rivendell.
One of my favorite things... My Bible. I got it for my 16th birthday over 30 years ago.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Tonight starts Sabbath.
